A country's desperate struggle to rise from the fire of oblivion

A World Gone Mad

Civilzation as we know it was shattered by nuclear war. But out of the smouldering wreckage, Ben Raines—the famed soldier and survival expert—has emerged as the strong leader the Resistance needs to help build a new, free nation out of the rubble. With his expertise as a strategist and fighter, the rebels think they just might have a chance to survive.

A Nation Under Siege

To their north, the mercenary, Sam Hartline is joining forces with an invading army of Russians. When Hartline and the Reds move south and attack, Ben and his people will raise a bloody banner of defiance. It falls to them to defend earth's last bastion of freedom—to make any sacrifice so that humankind might outlast the... Anarchy in the Ashes

Pinnacle - 1997

Come and take it

"We have to bring back the laws upon which this nation was founded. A lot of people are going to die before it happens. It’s called defending freedom." —Ben Raines

In the aftermath of germ and nuclear warfare, of plague and pillage and bloody anarchy, the fate of a divided world hangs by a slender thread. Ben Raines and his SUSA Rebels are on one side... the enemies of freedom are on the other. There’s only a slim chance America will make it, but it’s a chance that wasn’t there before. And Ben Raines has sworn to make the dream of government by the people a reality.

Until ruthless mercenary Sam Hartline puts together a mammoth army of invading Russians that could not only decimate Raines’s Rebel forces but crush the dream that was—and is—America.

Once and for all.


It lived to kill

It was a man, but it was like no man Ben had ever seen. It was huge, with mottled skin and huge, clawed hands. The shoulders and arms appeared to be monstrously powerful. The eyes and nose were human, but the jaw was animal. The ears were perfectly formed, but the teeth were fanged.

A terrified young girl stood between Ben and the... whatever in God's name the creature was. It towered over her. Ben guessed it was an easy seven feet tall.

Ben didn't hesitate. He whipped out his .45 just as the creature lunged for the girl. He got off one slug; the big shot hit the mutant in the shoulder. It screamed in pain and spun around. All three hundred pounds of it were mad—and now it was coming right at Ben...
